So, other new members... what brought you to the magical world of FZ? Are a lot of you older and saw him live, or are the a bunch of other 20-30 yo's who have been sucked into FZ fanaticism?

Back in the mid 80s, FZ turned me off blues and playing guitar for a whole year.
I'm not a real fan BTW, I only have 31 albums and I never saw him.

Kapt, I was happily tinkering away thinking I was a pretty decent blues player at 19, then BAM - FZ made me realise how completely average I was!
Anyway, a year later I though, fuck it I'll try and get better then.
I'm OK now :mrgreen:

I think you can consider yourself a "real fan".

Your never alone Zut. Frank and us are always there for ya. Just like you'd be there for any of us fellow ZappaFreaks! Know it, smile and move on with a warm feeling in your heart and a Zappa song in your head my ZappaFreak friend. Life's to short to sit around pitying yourself when so many are worse off than us. Volunteer to help other folks less fortunate than yourself and you'll find out your much happier than you ever knew!!! :wink:

I love ya man! :D

Yep, that's right Zut. I broke every mirror in the place just lookin' at 'em! I forgot to tell them to cover those damn things when the Kaptain's in da house! But it also gave Mrs. Plook an excuse to remodel the whole place. So if ya look at it that way Ugly Is Good!!! :D 8)

First got to know him when I was 14 - I liked it but I only had a couple of albums... (his live performances are just soooo much better) and again, I was just 14 - I was more into the stuff my peers liked. (and rock in general)

But then in my early twenties I started listening to FZ again until I had an entire discography in my possession + as many bootlegs as I could possibly find :) I think it was then that I realized I had a bit of an obsession with Frank's music xD

I like blues and jazz in general too... but nothing quite moves me like frank's songs and solos.


Edit: I'm 28 now btw
